The study of zoology is an exploration of how animals have evolved, how they function, and the ways in which they interact with their environment. The subject integrates anatomy, physiology, behaviour, ecology, evolution, and conservation to provide a comprehensive understanding of species structure and diversity. Humans have created a rapidly-changing world to which animals have had to adapt. Understanding the amazing diversity of animals that share our planet helps us to understand our origins, as well as predict future evolution.

Students can participate in two residential field trips in the UK, enabling them to study animals in the wild. These trips are part of two core modules. For UK-based field trips the University will cover costs of transport, accommodation and meals at the field site. There is also an optional Overseas Field Course module in the final year. Further details on the Overseas Field Course, including costs, can be found in the Features section.

Throughout the BSc (Hons) Zoology degree at University of Lincoln , students have the chance to develop skills in scientific methods and communication. There is also an opportunity for students to gain professional experience by undertaking a placement year, between the second and third year of their studies.
